Access to much-loved Lawyers Field greenspace in Brierley Hill reopened

Councillors Wayne Little and Adam Davies at the site

Lawyers Field, which sits between Church Street and Delph Road in Brierley Hill, has reopened after being closed to the public since 2013 following concerns at the time that part of the footway in Church Street was collapsing into a void.

As well as losing access from Church Street down to Lawyers Field and through to Delph Road, residents were also left frustrated by the neglected state of the so called ‘temporary’ fencing and concrete blocks which had been installed to block the access.

Councillor Adam Davies worked with council officers to identify the funding and designs needed to rebuild the collapsing wall and reopen the pedestrian walkway. Following completion of the work, Cllr Davies said:

“I’m so pleased we’ve managed to get this project off the ground and completed for residents after it had been ignored for far too long.

“Now the works are complete, the eyesore 'temporary' concrete blocks are gone, and residents can once again easily access Lawyer's Field to enjoy with their families, walk their dogs or just to spend some quiet time to themselves in the sun.”

Newly elected Cllr Wayne Little added: “Helping to restore pride in our area is so important – especially with eyesore issues like this which had been left forgotten for far too long.

“Having access to green spaces also makes a big difference for all of us, so we hope residents will now find that much easier with the path from Church Street reopened.”
